    If Disney Springs is part of Disney can I stay in a hotel at Disney Springs and still get magic bands, airport shuttle, and the dining plan? Thanks!

    Hi Tammie,
    Thanks for submitting your question to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You must be really excited about your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort; do you have a countdown already? I know I do when I'm coming up on a visit.

    You asked some questions about several Disney offerings...let's tackle them one by one.  First, MagicBands! I absolutely love them. They make visiting the Walt Disney World Resort so easy because my park ticket is around my wrist all the time; my FastPass+ selections are easy to access with my MagicBand. Any guest may purchase a MagicBand and link it to their theme park ticket. However, there are several privileges that are only for Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests, such as free MagicBands with your resort hotel reservation and the ability to use your MagicBand to charge to your room.  If you're staying in Disney Springs, this will not be extended to your MagicBand.

    Next, you mention an airport shuttle.  Naturally, there are airport shuttles for hire all around the Orlando area; if you're referring to Disney's Magical Express, the free transport to and from the Orlando International Airport, that is reserved for Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests only.  If you're staying in Disney Springs, that is not extended to those hotels.

    Lastly, you mention the Disney Dining Plan, which is a great way to prepay for your dining for your entire stay.  This is also only available if you're staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, which does not extend to those in Disney Springs.

    Tammie, I hope this has helped with your vacation planning!

    Best Wishes, 
    Amy S.
